I started Stacy Nash's Garden gate several years ago. The project went into the WIP basket when it came to back side.
Stacy's original design was stitched on the front cover
and the inside cover but not the back cover. I thought the back cover needed something. And this was the beginning of the problem. I started looking at other designs. Did I want something in keeping with the gardening theme a basket? a flower? Did I want personalization? a Cartouche? I dug out design after design, motif book after motif book and could not make a decision.
After much deliberation, I finally narrowed the choices to these two books: Brenda Keys Alphabets, Motifs and Borders and Minuscules & Majuscules. I decided the back motif would be a cartouche with an initial. I was torn between two choices of cartouche's and AppleJack came to the rescue and made a choice for me. Whew!
Now who would have ever thought something as simple as this could cause so much anguish?
